  • Courtney Milan Novella Collection

    The Courtney Milan Novella Collection is $2.99 at Amazon and Barnes & Noble! This collection features four, standalone novellas and the actual length of these is collectively longer than a typical novel (as per the description).

    Four previously published novellas…available now at one low price.

    The Governess Affair

    Three months ago, governess Serena Barton was sacked. Now she’s demanding compensation from the man responsible: a petty, selfish duke.

    But it’s not the duke she fears. Hugo Marshall handles all the duke’s dirty business, and he’s been ordered to get rid of her by fair means or foul. If only he didn’t find her so compelling…

    A Kiss for Midwinter

    Miss Lydia Charingford is always cheerful, and never more so than at Christmas time. Still, no matter how hard she smiles, she can’t forget the dark secret that nearly ruined her life. But someone else knows the truth of those dark days: the sarcastic Doctor Jonas Grantham. She wants nothing to do with him…or the butterflies that take flight in her stomach every time he looks her way…

    What Happened at Midnight

    Fleeing the consequences of her father’s embezzlement, Mary Chartley takes a position as a lady’s companion, only to find herself a virtual prisoner at Doyle’s Grange, her employer’s house. And then the nightmare truly begins: the man she loves, who also happens to be the man from whom her father stole, shows up at her door seeking recompense. And she has no way to pay him…

    The Lady Always Wins

    Railway financier Simon Davenant has waited seven years for a second chance with Virginia Croswell, his childhood sweetheart and best friend. He’s not about to let his impending financial ruin destroy the opportunity.

    This time, he’ll do anything he can to secure her hand in marriage–even if it means losing her heart for good.

    These novellas were previously published as standalone titles. Together, they are 124,000 words long—about 33% more than a full-length novel.

  • Alanna

    Alanna by Tamora Pierce

    Alanna by Tamora Pierce is $1.99! This is book one in the Song of the Lioness series, which I know is on many a keeper shelf. It’s also been mentioned in a couple Rec Leagues. This has a new cover design and it seems all four books in the series are on sale.

    From Tamora Pierce, the first book in the Song of the Lioness Quartet, honored with the Margaret A. Edwards Award.

    “From now on I’m Alan of Trebond, the younger twin. I’ll be a knight.”

    And so young Alanna of Trebond begins the journey to knighthood. Alanna has always craved the adventure and daring allowed only for boys; her twin brother, Thom, yearns to learn the art of magic. So one day they decide to switch places: Disguised as a girl, Thom heads for the convent; Alanna, pretending to be a boy, is on her way to the castle of King Roald to begin her training as a page. But the road to knighthood is not an easy one. As Alanna masters the skills necessary for battle, she must also learn to control her heart and to discern her enemies from her allies. Filled with swords and sorcery, adventure and intrigue, good and evil, Alanna’s first adventure begins—one that will lead to the fulfillment of her dreams and make her a legend in the land.

  • Lucky Streak

    Lucky Streak by Tif Marcelo

    Lucky Streak by Tif Marcelo is $1.99 at Amazon! This is book three in the Heart Resort series and features a second chance romance. However, all I can think about it the cover model getting footprints on that big window.

    From the USA Today bestselling author of Know You by Heart comes a spirited romance set in the Heart Resort universe—a love story about fate, family, and second chances.

    I never thought I’d see her again. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? But five years later, my casino fling is my new next-door neighbor.

    A lot’s happened since we got acquainted in that hotel room. I finished out my military career, took a job with my estranged father, moved to the beach…the only thing that hasn’t changed is that Beatrice has always been on my mind. I can’t let her get away again. Lucky for me, she feels the same way.

    Not so lucky, though, is our families’ business rivalry—and our resorts’ competition for the same property.

    As much as I want to ride off into the sunset with Beatrice on the back of my bike, we want to make this work. And that means smoothing things out between our families.

    If we thought finding each other after our night in Vegas was a long shot, this feud is about to give impossible a whole new meaning.

  • Lone Women

    Lone Women by Victor LaValle

    Lone Women by Victor LaValle is $1.99! I thought this one came out much more recent, but I mentioned this one back in March on Hide Your Wallet. I love LaValle’s horror novels and I’m very curious about the TV adaptation of The Changeling.

    Blue skies, empty land—and enough room to hide away a horrifying secret. Or is there? Discover a haunting new vision of the American West from the award-winning author of The Changeling.

    Adelaide Henry carries an enormous steamer trunk with her wherever she goes. It’s locked at all times. Because when the trunk is opened, people around her start to disappear…

    The year is 1914, and Adelaide is in trouble. Her secret sin killed her parents, and forced her to flee her hometown of Redondo, California, in a hellfire rush, ready to make her way to Montana as a homesteader. Dragging the trunk with her at every stop, she will be one of the “lone women” taking advantage of the government’s offer of free land for those who can cultivate it—except that Adelaide isn’t alone. And the secret she’s tried so desperately to lock away might be the only thing keeping her alive.

    Told in Victor LaValle’s signature style, blending historical fiction, shimmering prose, and inventive horror, Lone Women is the gripping story of a woman desperate to bury her past—and a portrait of early twentieth-century America like you’ve never seen.
